The California store has been a labor problem for them for years. The Black Friday strikes originated there. In addition, they've had many demands for pay increases from there.
Well, as you know, Section 7 of the NLRA specifically recognizes the right of employees to form unions. It also specifically prohibits actions that harm employees for attempting to organize or successfully organizing.
Assuming your argument is true, and that these employees were fired for organizing, then they have clear legal grounds to sue.
No doubt that you, as a supporter of law and order, will be diligent in defending and protecting the rights of your fellow Americans, and would support government intervention to uphold the law. Right?
That's a creative question. Yes, I support law and order but is a company allowed to close a store that they have had labor issues at? Would that be a violation? Especially if they were to claim plumbing problems. If they only terminated the employees that organized, I'd say it was open and shut. But closing five stores for a period of six months or more?
